REPORT OF THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

To the Citizens of Cohasset: 

The Board of Selectmen met as usual each week on Wednesday evenings 
during 1977, except during the month of July and August when regular meetings 
were held every other week. Several previously posted special meetings were 
convened for various reasons during the year. Also, its members met many times 
with other town, county, and state boards, committees and commissions in the 
interest of a more informed and better town government. Of course, considerable 
time was devoted to daily operations of departments directly under the board's 
control. 

Projects authorized by the last annual and special town meetings and under 
the Selectmen's jurisdiction were completed as follows: 

a. Renovations to Government Island Pier. 

b. Town's vital records storage room at the High School. 

c. Concrete fueUng pad at town gasoline pumps. 

d. Engineering study and report on Doane Street drainage. 

e. Engineering study and report on Rattlesnake Run drainage off 
Jerusalem Road. 

f. Engineering survey recommending improvements to Margin Street 
performed by the Norfolk County Engineers at no cost to the 
Town. 

g. Engineering survey for planning future improvements to the Village 
area also performed by the Norfolk County Engineers at no cost to 
the Town. 

In other business, four members were appointed to a joint committee in 
conjunction with the Town of Hull to work out mutual problems concerning 
the control of algae and midges at Strait's Pond. Recommendations will be 
made at a future Town Meeting offering solutions to the problem. 

Following several meetings with local fishermen and other regular users of 
the harbor, the U.S. Corps of Engineers was persuaded, with the assistance of 
U.S. Representative Gerry E. Studds to re-evaluate Cohasset's need for mainte- 
nance dredging. As a result, tentative approval has been granted for the project. 

Collective bargaining has continued throughout the year with various em- 
ployee bargaining units under the Selectmen's jurisdiction cuhninating in a 
two-year agreement with fire department personnel which was ratified by the 
Town and a tentative two-year agreement with police department personnel, 
yet to be ratified by a town meeting. Both contracts were negotiated in full 
recognition of escalating costs in those departments while maintaining a sense 
of responsibiUty to the Town to provide the best services possible. A unique 
situation has developed regarding so-called public works employees. It appears 
that they no longer wish to be represented by their presently certified bargaining 
agent and are seeking decertification through the Mass. Department of Labor. 

20 



The Town has been, and continues to be ready to negotiate once the matter is 
resolved. 

As custodians of the Town cemeteries, it has become increasingly apparent 
that existing burial grounds are being rapidly depleted. Therefore, the Selectmen 
have requested that the Planning Board investigate suitable sites for expansion. 
In the meantime, measures will be taken to allocate existing vacant plots in a 
judicious manner. 

The Town is continuing to benefit from Federal Revenue Sharing and the 
Comprehensive Employment and Training Acts. The latter has altered its objec- 
tives toward training and education rather than public service employment which 
will undoubtedly reduce benefits to Cohasset in future years. 

The foregoing by no means covers the total involvement of our office during 
the past year but only serves to highlight the varied problems coming before us. 
The Board is extremely grateful for the cooperation received from other town 
officials, employees, boards and committees for the interest in town affairs 
demonstrated by so many citizens. It has helped to make our job more rewarding. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Arthur L. Clark, Chairman 
Mary Jeanette Murray 
Henry W. Ainslie, Jr. 
Board of Selectmen

3. A person applying for site plan review shall file an application with the 
Planning Board, including copies of a preliminary site plan as required

natural qualities of the Town. 

6. In the event that the Planning Board approves a site plan under these 
provisions, any construction, reconstruction, substantial exterior alteration, 
or addition shall be carried on only in conformity with any conditions, 
modifications and restrictions subject to which the Board shall have made

reconstruction, exterior alteration or additions not in conformance with 

an approved site plan shall be ordered halted and fully removed by the 
Building Inspector. 

This section shall be enforced by the provisions set forth in Section 5C of 
this By-Law. 

8. The approval of a site plan, or a modification or amendment thereof, shall 
remain effective for a period of one year only from the date of such 
approval (either directly or by inaction) unless prior to the expiration 

of such one year period, the applicant makes substantial efforts to build 
in accordance with the approved site plan, or unless the Planning Board 
votes to extend the time for a period not to exceed one additional year. 

9. Any person aggrieved by a decision of the Planning Board, or by its

section, may appeal to the Board of Appeals, as provided for in Section

Article: 

To see if the Town will vote to amend the Zoning By-Law of the Town of 
Cohasset adopted December 2, 1969 by adding to paragraph (3) under Section 
4-B-l Permitted Uses the following provisions so that this paragraph reads as

by residents of the premises providing there is adequate space, proper shelter

Article 12. 

Moved. That the Town amend the Zoning By-Law of the Town of Cohasset 
adopted December 2, 1969 by adding to paragraph (3) under Section 4-B-l 
Permitted Uses the following provisions so that this paragraph reads as foUows: 

(3) The raising or keeping of animals, livestock or poultry as pets for use by 
residents of the premises providing there is adequate space, proper shelter or 
enclosure, no objectionable noise or odor observable at the lot Une and com- 
pHance with all public health rules and regulations. 

RECOMMENDATION OF PLANNING BOARD 

The Planning Board does not recommend this article. 

(1) We feel as though the by-law is worded as to be too open to interpretation, 
with words such as adequate, proper, objectionable or observable. 

(2) Further the present board is not in favor of making changes to the by-law 
in a piecemeal fashion such as this, without the entire by-law being circulated. 

(3) Thirdly, we feel as though the grandfather clause would exempt any 
animals or pets which may currently present problems to neighbors. 

(4) Finally, we feel as though rules and regulations would best be handled 
by the Board of Health. 

The Planning Board would like the town to know that we are finalizing our 
rewriting and codifying of the Towns' Zoning by-laws and will be presenting 
the completed draft for your consideration at the next annual Town Meeting 
as required by the Massachusetts General Laws. In completing our draft, we will 
have another opportunity to review the section concerning the keeping and 
raising of livestock and pets. 

Article 12 defeated by a hand vote, YES 31 - NO 214. 

Article 13. (Inserted by the Board of Selectmen at the request of Lot E. 
Bates, Jr. Chairman of the Fire Station Study Committee.) 

To determine whether the Town would authorize the Fire Station Study 
Committee to develop plans and specifications to construct a new consolidated 



73 



sub fire station and appropriate from Surplus Revenue (free cash) the sum of 
$40,000.00 for surveys, borings, and architectural and engineering fees for the

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH 

Personnel 

Kevin P. O'Brien 
Health Agent, Inspector of Animals 

Tai Jin Chung M.D. 
Pediatrician, Well Baby and Well Child Conference 

EUenora Lenihan and Margaret Loud 

Public Health Nurse, Nursing Services by contract 

with the Social Service League 

Joseph Laugelle 
Superintendent of the Town's Disposal Area 

Charles T. Patrolia 
Plumbing Inspector 

Donald Clark 
Plumbing Inspector 

As in the past the function of the Board of Health continues to be the pro- 
motion and protection of human comfort and well being by upholding current, 
local and state health codes and regulations. 

The board actively monitors the various clinics which the Social -Service 
League has been conducting. Overall, participation of the town's citizens has 
increased. There was an excellent response to the two flu cHnics this fall with 
immunizations of the Bivalent A- Victoria and Hong Kong vaccine. No serious 
reactions were reported. Again, the Health Agent and PubUc Health Nursing 
staff were most efficient and should be highly commended. 

The recycling program has become the responsibility of the Disposal area 
personnel and hopefully this can be managed with no additional town paid 
personnel. 

The plans for the new sanitary landfill are still awaiting final State approval. 
This will allow the Town six - eight more years at the present disposal location. 

Overall a marked increase in the work load of the Health Agent and office 
personnel has occurred since the revision and upgrading of new State Codes 
and Regulations in July of 1977. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Stephen O'Connor, M.D., Chairman 
Rene Chiasson, Secretary 
Roger Pompeo, M.D.

reduced by booster immunization with MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) 
vaccine.

given to the Board of Health.

Massachusetts had a large epidemic of Salmonella this summer. There were 
probably more cases of the disease among carriers and undiagnosed patients in 
town than the Cohasset figures reflect. 

The Cohasset Social Service League provides nursing services for the Board 
of Health. All residents are eUgible for these health services. The Senior Keep 
Well Clinics have been well attended and much appreciated. Fewer babies 
attended Well Child Clinic this year and the number of sessions has been re- 
duced. In order to fill other unmet needs, the Social Service League will plan 
sessions during 1978 at convenient hours for checking the blood pressure of 
adults over 18 years of age. This will be sponsored by the American Heart 
Association with follow up and referral to physicians by the Social Service 
League nurses. 

Lazy Eye screening for amblyopia will be offered to preschool children 
with the cooperation of the Lions Club. 

It was a pleasure to have worked this year with Mr. Kevin O'Brien and the 
Board of Health. They are always willing to see that the health needs of the 
towns people are met. 

This was the first year in which the nurses were frequently in a situation 
involving the Emergency Medical Team of the Fire Department. Our thanks to 
them and to the Water, Police and Highway Departments for their cooperation 
and help. 

We wish for Cohasset continuing good health. 

Respectfully submitted, 

EUenora Lenihan, R.N.

In 1976, after authorization by the Annual Town Meeting, a contract for a 
new aerial ladder truck was awarded to the Seagrave Corporation. Recent 
contact with the manufacturer indicates a delivery about April of 1978. When 
placed in service this will be the first diesel powered apparatus of the department. 

It is my intention to request funds for the purchase and equipping of a 
1,000 gallon per minute pumping engine to replace the 1950 Mack presently 
in service at Beechwood. This is in keeping with the apparatus replacement 
program presented to the Capital Budget Committee. It is important that this 
systematic replacement of apparatus be carried out to keep the financial impact 
at a minimum and to keep the apparatus of the department within reasonable 
age limits. The true criteria forjudging the condition of fire apparatus is not 
the condition of the paint or its relatively low mileage . . but will it still perform 
at its rated pump capacity, are replacement parts available and will it be reliable.

EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICE 

Under the provisions of Chapter 1 1 IC of the General Laws of the Common- 
wealth a dramatic change in Ambulances and Ambulance Services was mandated. 

The Town of Cohasset under the 1975-1976 Ambulance Distribution Program 
purchased a modular type ambulance, built upon Federal KKK-A-1822 speci- 
fications, at a considerable saving to the citizens of Cohasset.

work group, as well as being assigned other duties. 

Fire Captain Roger W. Lincoln has been appointed Training Officer for the 
department. A program for in-service training is being developed to maintain a 
required level of proficiency and to keep abreast of the rapidly changing condi- 
tions found on the fire ground. It seems that each new product on the market 
provides a new area of concern for the firefighter. 

EQUIPMENT 

The equipment of the department is in keeping with that of a modern fire 
department. The use of larger diameter hose, for moving larger amounts of 
water to the fire ground with greater efficiency, has been of great value. The 
smaller tools and appliances . . such as nozzles, are up to date and of the latest 
style. 

An automatic recording device has been installed on the telephone and radio 
system to record all calls received and transmitted. This is of great value in 
checking emergency calls received from streets and addresses with similar 
sounding names. It also serves as a double check on response to the correct 
address and indicates the time of all such messages. 

An electronic device "Vaportron" was purchased and has proven its value 
in the location of the source of leaks of flammable gases and vapors. This 
device is responsive to a wide spectrum of gases . . gasoHne, domestic gas, 
alcohols, methane, etc. 

The tool that has gained the most public approval and support nationwide 
is the "Jaws of Life". This tool was purchased for the department by the 
Cohasset Firemen's Benefit Association and put into service December 20, 1977. 
The funds to purchase this tool were the result of public demonstrations and an 
efficient fund raising campaign. The citizens of Cohasset responded to this 
campaign in a most generous manner and several organizations contributed 
generously. The small surplus of funds is being used to purchase spare replace- 
ment parts and first aid kits better suited to the type of emergency the depart- 
ment responds to. 

STATIONS 

There is currently before the citizens of Cohasset an article proposing funds 
necessary to prepare plans and specifications for a modern fire station which 
will consolidate the present apparatus and men quartered in the North Cohasset 
and Beechwood Fire Stations. 

It is my sincere hope that the townspeople will support this measure, which 
will provide the department with the space needed to adequately house men 
and apparatus in a modern and efficient manner. The present system of three 
fire stations is outmoded and inefficient. Manpower, the heart of the Fire 
Department and the most expensive portion of the department operations cannot 
be used to its maximum with the three station concept. 



100 



This unit purchased from the Modular Ambulance Corporation of Grand 
Prairie, Texas was delivered and equipped in accordance with the regulations of 
the Department of PubHc Health, Office of Emergency Medical Services. 

The Fire Department assumed operation of the Emergency Ambulance 
service on February 19, 1977. On April 8, 1977 the Department of Public 
Health conducted their initial inspection. This inspection covered the medical 
supplies and equipment, vehicle design, construction and equipment, personnel, 
personnel records, training and training records and operational policies and 
procedures. I am pleased to report that the Department of Public Health has 
suggested to other services the adoption of this departments operational 
policies and procedures. This inspection pointed out some minor deficiencies 
and immediate corrective action was taken. The fmal inspection and review was 
held and the Town of Cohasset granted a two year hcense to operate a Class 1 
ambulance, July 12, 1977. 

Under further provisions of Chapter 1 1 IC is a requirement that Emergency 
Medical Technicians be re-certified every two years. On November 5,12, and 
19 of this year a refresher course was conducted by the department as an aid 
to meeting this requirement. Daily in-service training, response to emergencies, 
attendance at seminars are also part of the re-certification process. 

The transition of the ambulance service into the Fire Department, in compli- 
ance with the many regulations and requirements, has required many hours of 
research and study. However, I feel it has been carried out successfully and 
with a minimum of confusion. The Emergency Medical Technicians and the 
Officers and Men of the department should be credited with the success of 
providing an excellent level of service. It is intended to maintain this high level 
of proficiency and improve as the future mandates. 

The Fire Department presently has ten registered Emergency Medical 
Technicians, four awaiting certification - having completed training and four 
firefighters, recently appointed, waiting for a class to be formed. 

PERSONNEL 

The Table of Organization of the department calls for twenty-eight officers 
and men, assigned in four groups of seven men per group. The four firefighters 
approved by a vote of the 1977 Annual Town Meeting were appointed Aug. 11, 
1977. The following men were appointed: WilHam T. Litchfield, Randall W. 
Rosano, James E. Fiori, and John M. Sullivan. The above named were given 
two months of intensive training in firefighting evolutions, operation of ap- 
paratus and equipment, department procedures, first aid and other subjects 
necessary in performance of their duties. One man was assigned to each of the 
four groups, bringing the level of strength to seven. 

The Division of Personnel Administration has posted a promotional exami- 
nation for Fire Captain on February 25, 1978. When an appointment is made 
from this list it will complete the organizational strength and provide one 
Deputy Fire Chief and three Fire Captains. Each of these Officers command a

RECOMMENDATIONS 

I respectfully make the following recommendations for your consideration 
and support. 

1 . The purchase and equipping of a new 1 ,000 gallon per minute pumping 
engine. 

2. The purchase and installation of a new 100 watt base radio station at 
Fire Headquarters. 

3. The purchase of additional portable radio transmitter/receivers, to 
equip all of the first Hne pumpers, ladder, and ambulance. 

4. The construction of a modern fire station which will consolidate the 
North Cohasset and Beechwood apparatus in a modern, spacious and 
well equipped facihty. 

CONCLUSION 

At this time I would like to extend my very sincere thanks and appreciation 
to Firefighter Austin E. Studley, who has been forced to retire from the depart- 
ment for reasons of health. Firefighter Studley was appointed a Call Firefighter 
on July 1, 1954; appointed a Permanent Firefighter November 22, 1954 and 
retired December 19, 1977. He performed his duties with skill and a high level 
of devotion to duty. 

I would like to thank the citizens of Cohasset for their support and cooper- 
ation. To the Honorable Board of Selectmen, other department heads and 
department members, and all committees and boards for their understanding, 
guidance and cooperation, my sincere thanks. 

To all of the Officers and Men of the Fire Department for their performance 
of duties and cooperation, my sincere thanks and appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Charles Piepenbrink 

Chief of Fire Department and

REPORT OF THE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT 
1956- 1978 

For twenty-two years, I have had the honor and privilege of running the 
Highway Department. 

I have decided not to seek reelection. 

I have tried to get the most for our tax dollar, keep the Department small 
and get the work done. 

I thank the people who have put their trust in me and the men in the

REPORT TO THE BOARD OF 
TREE & PARK COMMISSIONERS - 1977 

This year the Tree & Park Department has done considerable clearing in 
Wheelwright Park in and around the nursery which is located at the entrance 
to Wheelwright Park. 

The tree planting program will be continued in the spring. Milliken Field 
fencing is still being continued and the filling at the practice field. Roadside 
clearing was done along the town streets and also at the Town disposal area. 

There has been one major change; the three Town cemeteries are now under 
the supervision of the Tree and Park Department. 

I would like to thank my men and the men in other departments for their 
assistance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Peter G. Laugelle 

Tree & Park Superintendent

REPORT OF THE HARBOR DEPARTMENT 

To the Citizens of Cohasset and the Board of Selectmen: 

The year of 1978 was one of many firsts in the overall operation of running 
the harbor. It was necessary to revamp the waiting list to make it a more 
realistic tool to govern boats going in the harbor. After many hours spent by 
the Harbor Study Committee, and a public meeting, it was decided that all 
potential boat owners should reaffirm their intent by paying a one-time $5.00 
mooring application fee. Also, they should reaffirm their intent to the Harbor- 
master in writing by June 1st of each calendar year or be automatically dropped 
from the list. It was recommended and accepted by the Selectmen that the date 
of the application should be the determining factor for any particular boat's 
priority to get in the harbor whether it be sail, power or commercial. There was 
a lot of time spent debating whether some boats should be given preferential 
treatment which I deemed unnecessary for all concerned. 

The May 9th and June 10th Northeast storm kept the department on it's 
toes saving boats that broke away from their moorings due to chaffing of moor- 
ing lines. There were approximately $250,000.00 worth of boats saved from 
serious damage. It is fair to say that there was less than $5,000.00 worth of 
damage done to these boats. It was the total effort of the Harbor Department 
employees and assistance of concerned citizens that made this possible. It was 
necessary to work one shift of 30 hours straight. 

Two major projects were completed this year — the rebuilding of Lawrence 
wharf float and the pointing up of the walls of Government Island pier along 
with the resurfacing of the pier. It is hoped that these two areas will be mainte- 
nance free for some years to come. 

It must be stated that vandalism and theft was down 80% over last year due 
to a job well done by James Curley who was assigned to Night Patrol. It proves 
that given the necessary funds and the determination of a conscientious employee 
to do a good job, you can get results. 

I am again requesting monies for a burglar alarm for the Harbor Department 
office which is isolated and easy prey for thieves. Last year $900.00 worth of 
radio equipment was stolen and this year over S300.00 worth of tools. 

The department made several search and rescue missions with the end result 
of no lives lost, no serious injuries and boats saved. It also assisted the Police 
Department in what appeared to be a drowning but turned out to be a homicide. 

I am most grateful for the many hours spent by the Harbor Study Committee, 
the cooperation received by the Selectmen, the persons employed by the Depart- 
ment and the Assistant Harbormasters for a job well done. It is the cooperation 
as well as the concern of all boat owners that make possible a more efficient 
operation of a department overtaxed in demand for harbor space and facilities. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Harry H. Ritter 
Harbormaster

SOUTH SHORE MOSQUITO CONTROL PROJECT 
REPORT OF OPERATIONS IN 1977 

Submitted, herewith, is a report of the South Shore Mosquito Control Project's 
operations for the period November 1, 1976 to October 31, 1977. 

The Project is an organized, year round, regionally operational effort to 
combat the nuisance and menace of mosquitoes. 

The Project comprises the communities of Braintree, Cohasset, Duxbury, 
Hingham, Hull, Marshfield, Norwell, Quincy, Scituate and Weymouth, an area 
covering 171 square miles with a population in excess of 250,000. 

The Project was established in 1953 under the Massachusetts General Law, 
Chapter 252 and Chapter 1 12, and Acts under and according to the provision to 
these and other laws pertaining to mosquito control. 

The Project's operation can be classified under three categories: — 

1. Water Management 

2. Larvaciding 

3. Adulticiding 

Water Management — is where stagnant and brackish water, the need of all 
mosquitoes, is caused to circulate and flush off, preventing the development of 
mosquito larvae. During the past year 2307 man hours was spent on this 
operation, opening 74,500 cubic feet of marsh reclamation ditches. 5100 cubic 
feet of new ditches was installed. 33,850 feet of obstruction was cleared from 
brooks and streams and 89,550 feet of brush was cut and cleared for purpose 
of access. 39,400 feet of waterways was surveyed to appraise their working 
conditions and needs for attention. 

Larvaciding — is when stagnant or brackish water is found to have mosquito 
larvae present and must then be sprayed. Helicopter and fixed wing aircraft 
started off the larvaciding operation in the spring by treating 1633 acres of 
woodland swamps. This operation is preceded by checking sites for a 
mosquito larvae count and then post sprayed and checked for results. 

During the main part of the season, crews circulate throughout the Project 
checking probable breeding sites. 1607 man hours was spent larval checking 
and 415 man hours was spent in actual larvaciding with ground equipment, 
treating 1633 acres. 317 man hours was spent larval treating 10, 834 storm 
catch basins. 

Adulticiding — is when it becomes necessary, due to a noted or reported 
large number of mosquitoes, to lay down a space or residue spray in the 
infested area with a vehicle mounted mist sprayer or back pack mist sprayer. 
2545 man hours was spent on this operation treating 23,344 acres. 

The Project received 2252 request calls for service. All calls were answered 
and treated in one manner or another. 



106 



The Project is also engaged in two other programs in five of it's towns, the 
control of the biting Greenhead Fly and the brackish water Midge. 5775 acres 
was aerial treated in three towns for adult Greenhead Fly control and 175 
acres was aerial treated for Midge larvae control. 

The use of the insecticide Baytex, as applied by aircraft, had a ninety day 
restriction placed on it. It was necessary for the Project to shift over to a milder 
form of larvacide, Abate. Abate was applied as a mosquito larvacide at a rate 
of .03 of a pound to the acre at breeding sites. 

Malathion was used for mosquito adulticiding at rates of between .05 to 0.2 
of a pound to the acre. 

Baytex was used to treat storm catch basins at a rate of .001 of a pound to 
each basin. 

All insecticides used by the Project have been registered for mosquito control 
use by the Environmental Protection Agency and meet with the approval of 
the Massachusetts Pesticide Board. 

All Project's regular personnel have been duly licensed by the Massachusetts 
Pesticide Board qualifying them for the safe handling and application of 
insecticides for mosquito control. 

The Project wishes to extend it's appreciation for the time and service 
rendered by the Board of Commissioners and acknowledges all assistance given 
by state and municipal officials; also the courtesies extended it by the many 
individuals they encountered in the past year.

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF 

THE COHASSET FREE PUBLIC LIBRARY 

1977 

1977 was a year of excitement, disruption and triumph for Cohasset's 
library. 

RENOVATION CONSTRUCTION PROCEEDS. Construction drawings, 
prepared by Anderson Notter Finegold Associates, were approved by the 
Trustees in January and went out for bid in February. The low bid by 
Constantino and Farley, Inc., of Burlington, MA, of $126,921 was within 
budget and was accepted. Construction started at the end of March and con- 
tinued to the end of the year. By the time of the official celebration of the 
library renovation on January 8, 1978, the Ubrary could truly be considered 
"new at 99". 1978 is the 99th year since Cohasset's public Hbrary was started 
with a small book collection located in Town Hall. 

THE LIBRARY OPERATES 'AS USUAL'. The renovation construction 
posed major problems to continuous operation of the library. 

Despite a good work plan by the contractors, it was necessary to find 
temporary, accessible storage for 8,000 books. A defunct Regional Library 
System Bookmobile was a good answer to this need and became part of the 
library landscape during the renovation. 

As work progressed, it was necessary to dispose of old furnishings and 
shelving that would not be used in the new library. The greater part of this 
property was taken up by other town departments. The remainder has been 
utilized by other Hbraries and sold to the pubhc at two silent auctions. 

The cacophony of the construction work and the excitement of change 
apparently attracted more business for the Hbrary. Circulation was up during 
the summer. For the staff, of course, the construction work made efficiency 
difficult and working conditions tedious. We are grateful that their limitless 
patience, dedication, and good humor turned a tough situation into an exciting 
one! The hbrary was open to the public, on schedule every day, but one, this 
year, and on that day the staff came to work. 

EXPENDITURES REMAIN WITHIN BUDGET. There were minimal numbers 
of change orders, and contracts for bookshelving and furnishings were awarded 
within budgeted amounts. At the request of the Advisory Committee, the 
Trustees voted to make certain exterior repairs, at $4,837 under the renovation 
appropriation, despite the Trustees' conviction that this expense should more 
properly be allocated to regular capital outlay. Despite this unexpected expen- 
diture, it appears certain that the renovation project will be completed within 
the $203,000 budget. 

A GALA CELEBRATION. The impressive results of the renovation project 
were appropriately celebrated during the week of January 8, 1978. An official 



108 



opening ceremony on Sunday afternoon emphasized the greatly improved 
library in terms of its potential for efficient and economical service to the 
public. Its rejuvenated appearance is an attractive and pleasant by-product of 
the effort. The Friends of the Cohasset Library, Inc., under the leadership of 
Donna McGee, planned a wonderful week-long celebration of the renovation 
with a number of excellent programs. They prepared and mailed to all Cohasset 
residents an extremely attractive invitation to the official opening and a program 
of the week's events. 

A TEAM EFFORT. Renovation of Cohasset's library is one of the significant 
moments in the town's history. It is the culmination of Cohasset's long-standing 
commitment to its library and the product of hundreds of people's efforts. 
As a strong institution, it has derived its strength from its foundations; the 
directors of the Paul Pratt Memorial Library, the Trustees of the Cohasset Free 
PubHc Library, its Hbrarians, and its users. Impetus for change came from this 
base, via a joint planning committee of the Trustees and Directors, working 
with Maurice N. Finegold, our architect for this project. The equation was 
completed with the gift of the library building to Cohasset in 1975, and the 
town meeting vote in 1976 to proceed with the renovations. Good contractors, 
excellent staff, support of the Friends, and a forgiving public made it work. 
The many town officers that have lent their advice, support, and assistance 
throughout, have truly made the project a town effort. 

The Trustees have continued to perform superbly this year. They have 
remained enthusiastic despite a number of additional, special meetings, and 
have always brought their most conscientious concern to any detail. Barbara 
M. Power, CordeUa T. Foell, and Richard E. Hayes, our librarian, made signif- 
icant contributions as members of the Trustees' Building Committee, which I had 
the pleasure of chairing. 

The Trustees particularly wish to thank Dick Hayes and his excellent staff 
for their many efforts which have helped make this dream a reahty. The Friends 
of the Library, too, can be congratulated for being the kind of friends everyone 
would like to have. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sheila S. Evans, Chairman 
Library Trustees

During this year of renovation, the staff proved to be as dedicated as the tax- 
payers could wish. Their hard work and good morale year after year makes this 
library the pleasant and successful place that it is. This year, despite more than 
usual reasonable causes (paint fumes, saws, jackhammers, dust, aggravation), 
four employees (of seven with this benefit) took no sick leave. With total 
accumulated sick leave entitlement (among seven employees) of 621 days, only 
17 days were lost to ilhess. Three employees voluntarily forfeited one or two 
vacation days each and chose to work instead. Thank you, staff, for your 
support and loyalty. I'm confident the taxpayers appreciate you.

SUMMER READING PROGRAM: Each summer we make an effort as school 
ends to attract children to our summer reading incentive program. Circulation 
of children's books is very high in summer. Of those who participated and 
reported: 

114 children read 5 or more books 
108 received a reading achievement certificate (10 books) 
86 received a free paperback book (20 books read) 

SUMMER FILMS: During July and August the library and the Recreation 
Department sponsored eight programs of free Charlie Chaplin movies. Average 
attendance was 73. 

INTERLIBRARY LOAN: Other Hbraries in the Regional Library System sent 
us 281 books, records or journal articles requested by our patrons. But 62 
such requests failed to be fulfilled — the ILL service needs much improvement. 
In addition, we borrowed from other libraries several deposit collections of 
special materials, such as large print books for persons with visual handicaps, 
and phonore cords for the children. 

SERVICES TO SCHOOLS: Thanks to Dr. John Packard and his media/Ubrary 
staff in the schools, cooperation between the public library and the schools 
is at an all time high. Staff from the Ubrary regularly visit the schools with 
film programs and book talks, and for consultation. Classes visit the library. 
I participated in a teacher workshop at the high school in February. We 
consult together on the selection of materials. The schools provide us with 
audiovisual equipment and advice. Teachers cooperate in planning library 
assignments. Book deposits are made available to classroom teachers. 

FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY: The many services of the Friends include 
more than 2,000 hours this year of volunteer help in the library at routine 
work, plus uncounted hours in planning and carrying out special programs 
and public relations. Volunteers make regular visits to two nursing homes 
and to shut-ins, delivering about 1,100 books this year. 

GIFTS: The trustees of the Hbrary, on behalf of the townspeople, thank 
those who have donated funds for the purchase of books:

REPORT OF THE COHASSET CONSERVATION COMMISSION - 1977 

The Conservation Commission held many hearings during the year on ap- 
plications under the Wetland Protection Act, Chapter 131, Sec. 40. The 
Commission continues to spend a major portion of its time administering the 
Wetland Protection Act. 

There were three resignations in 1977, Whitney Scott, Patsy Rabstejnek 
and Tom Duggan, Jr. We wish to extend them our thanks for the effort they 
have made to the work of the Commission during their terms. We welcome 
three new members; Patricia Buckley, Austin OToole and Peter O'Loughlin. 

The work of the Commission continues to be that of helping to inform the 
townspeople of what the effect of a proposed activity, such as filling a wetland, 
can have on the environment of which we are all a part.

RECREATION DIRECTOR'S ANNUAL REPORT - 1977 

The annual report of the Director of Recreation offers the opportunity to 
inform the citizens of Cohasset of progress in the area of recreational programs, 
facilities, services, and opportunities. 

During the first year of full-time operation, November 1976 - October 1977, 
there have been 5, 1 13 individuals, of all ages, that have participated in recre- 
ational programs and activities. 

Many programs require a minimal registration fee. The Recreation Depart- 
ment generated $4,984.00 revenue for the Town of Cohasset during the first 
year of operation. The revenue will help offset the tax rate during Fiscal Year 
1979. 

At present the Recreation Department is offering more than 25 regularly 
scheduled programs for all ages and interest groups. In addition to the regularly 
scheduled programs, many special events, activities, and projects are also being 
offered on an intermittent basis. 

This year's playground was quite successful with an all time high of 370 children 
registered. Plans for the program are currently being made for next year. 

This year we were able to offer six band concerts. Five concerts were pro- 
vided by the American Federation of Musicians, Local 138. One of those con- 
certs was free of charge and the other four were payed for at the rate 50% 
total cost. The Federation of Musicians payed the other 50% per concert. The 
sixth concert was performed by the United States Navy. The only charge for 
that concert was transportation. Over 1 ,300 people attended the concerts. 

During the summer the Paul Pratt Memorial Library and the Recreation 
Department co-sponsored a series of six 'Charlie Chaplin Films'. The movies 
were held in the Town Hall Auditorium and were free of charge. Close to 500 
people attended the six films. 

Seven other special events were held in conjunction with the summer play- 
ground program. All were well attended. 

Work began on the Elm's Meadow skating area in June of 1977. On June 
27, 1977 a dozen Youth Corps C.E.T.A. Workers began clearing brush in the 
Meadow and continued for 10 weeks under the Recreation Department's 
supervision. Plans for this year include a dam, fine grading, and additional 
lifting. The area is expected to be functional for the Winter of 1977-78. We 
would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Turn Off Drugs, Inc. who donated 
funds for the reaUzation of this project. Also, many thanks should go to Mr. 
George Jednick, Mr. Edwin Young, Mr. John Barnes, Mr. Richard Murphy, 
Mr. Arthur Clark, and numerous Town Boards, Committees, and Departments 
for their invaluable help and services concerning this project. 



113 



The Recreation Commission consists of seven members: Mr. Richard P. 
Barrow, Chairman, Mr. Hamilton T. Tewksbury, Vice Chairman, Mrs. Irene E. 
Brown, Secretary, Mrs. Nancy E. Sladen, Treasurer, Mr. Richard D. AinsHe, 
Mr. Eugene K. Price, and Mr. Ernest J. Sullivan. Many thanks should go to these 
individuals who donated their time and effort toward the betterment of recre- 
ation programs and activities for the Town of Cohasset. 

The Recreation Department utilizes many faciUties for programs. Thanks 
should go to Dr. John F. Maloney, Superintendent of Schools, and his entire 
staff of principals, teachers, and custodians that have made facilities available 
for many of our programs. 

Also, thanks should go to the numerous individuals who volunteered their 
time to help conduct such programs as Street Hockey, Kickball, Softball, 
Soccer, Weight Training, and Basketball.

COHASSET HOUSING AUTHORITY 

The sixty-four apartment Community for the Elderly and Handicapped had 
five tenant changes in 1977. 

Much time was consumed in correcting structural and mechanical defects 
of the original construction. This included the removal of thirteen dead trees 
and some planting rearrangement. 

At the Annual Town Election in 1977, Mrs. Yolanda Baccari was reelected 
for a second term of five years; and Mr. Conrad Ericsson was elected to fill the 
remaining two-year term of the retired Board Past-Chairman W. Chester Browne. 

Chairman Mrs. Mary Jeanette Murray resigned in May. She had served as State 
Representative on the Cohasset Housing Authority Board since it was organized 
in 1969. 

Mr. George W. Benedict III was appointed as the new State Representative 
to serve until 1982. 

Mr. Conrad Ericsson was elected the new Board Chairman. 

Due to illness, Mrs. Frances Antoine resigned as Chairman of the Tenant's 
Association, a position she had held since January 1975. Mrs. Helen Jason was 
elected as the new Chairman. 

Mr. Alfred Odermatt was reappointed as Executive Director, and Mr. Mike 
Emanuello was made full-time Maintenance Man. 

We are grateful for the many services that have been received from the 
various Town Departments, the Social Service League, and other Town Service 
Organizations.

REPORT OF THE COHASSET HISTORIC COMMISSION 

The Historic District Study Committee was appointed at the request of the 
Historic Commission. They have worked long and hard on a proposal to protect 
the Cohasset Common area. The long range protection of the Common has 
been neglected and we strongly feel that their efforts will enable the towns 
people of today and tomorrow to enjoy the beauty of the area. 

The work on the town clock is nearing completion. The entire movement of 
the clock has been either rebuilt or serviced. The clock should now record time 
for yet another hundred years due to the good work of Isaiah Lincoln and the 
South Shore Vocational School. 

The historic records have been sorted and put into order. A fireproof room 
has been set up in the basement of Cohasset High School for their preservation. 
A cross index file system is all that remains to be done from this long and 
tedious project done by Joe Hamilton.

reviewable in advance by the Commission, since most structures involved are 
white and many residents have concern about unusual color schemes appearing 
in the future. The Study Committee recommends that color changes which do 
not detract substantially from the overall historic and architectural appearance 
of the Common should be permitted. In the final analysis, however, the Study 
Committee beUeves that the Commission should have discretion to review 
all color changes. 

Whether or not a public hearing was required in connection with an appli- 
cation, a final determination on the application would have to be made by the 
Commission in all events within 60 days after the initial filing of the application. 
The Study Committee does not believe that this would create any undue hard- 
ship for any property owner. Any apphcant disagreeing with the Commission's 
determination would have the right to request review of the determination by 
a quahfied independent person designated by the MetropoUtan Area Planning 
Council, whose report would have to be filed within 40 days after such a 
request; the applicant would also have the right to appeal from the latter 
determination directly to Norfolk County Superior Court. In the alternative, 
an appeal to the same court could be taken directly from the original deter- 
mination of the Commission. 

5. Conclusion. The Study Committee beUeves that the Cohasset Common 
area is an asset of unique value to the Town of Cohasset. It beUeves that the 
creation of an Historic District encompassing the area surrounding the Com- 
mon would be most beneficial to the town in terms of ensuring the preservation 
of this beautiful, authentic and historic area.

REPORT OF THE HISTORIC DISTRICT STUDY COMMITTEE 

1. Purpose and Background. The Historic District Study Committee ("the 
Study Committee") was estabUshed in January, 1977, by action of the Board 
of Selectmen in accordance with Chapter 40C of the Massachusetts General 
Laws, to investigate the possible estabUshment of an Historic District in 
Cohasset. Chapter 40C, which is entitled "Historic Districts Act", authorizes 
cities and towns to establish historic districts for the "preservation and pro- 
tection of buildings and places significant in the history of the commonwealth 
and its cities and towns or their architecture." 

With the creation of the Study Conmiittee, Cohasset joined over sixty other 
Massachusetts communities in moving to presejye those historic elements unique 
to New England living. Beginning on March 10, 1977, the Study Committee 
met on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 p jn. in the Unitarian Parish 
House at 23 North Main Street. 

2. The Cohasset Common and Proposed Historic District. By letter dated 
February 9, 1977, the Selectmen suggested to the Study Committee that the 
Common area be evaluated for possible establishment of an Historic District. 
The Common area is a landmark area of considerable beauty and reknown. A 
Boston Globe article on New England "Commons" on April 21, 1977, noted 
that the Cohasset Common is considered by many to be the most beautiful 
New England Common south of Boston. It is the opinion of the Study Com- 
mittee that the designation of the Common as an Historic District under 
Chapter 40C would be of substantial benefit to the Town of Cohasset, now 
and in the future, as a means of preserving the distinctive character of the town. 

The first step taken by the Study Committee was to contact all Common 
area residents individually to inform them of the creation of the Committee, 
with a view toward determining the logical boundaries for a possible Historic 
District. The area residents were generally receptive to the proposed Historic 
District, and the Study Committee recommends the establishment of such a 
District. 

The boundaries for the proposed District were determined with considerable 
care. After much dehberation it was concluded that each property abutting 
the Common should be included in the proposed District together with several 
properties which are visible from the Common area. The District boundaries 
are indicated on the map attached hereto as Exhibit A. 

On August 18, 1977, the Study Committee submitted a Preliminary Report, 
recommending estabhshment of an Historic District, to the Town Planning 
Board and to the Massachusetts Historical Commission, as required by Chapter 
40C of the General Laws. Following review, each body endorsed the estabhsh- 
ment of an Historic District. The Study Committee furnished copies of the 
Preliminary Report to the Board of Selectmen and to the residents of the 
proposed District and subsequently met both with the Selectmen, on September 
29, and with many of the residents, at an open public meeting held on October 



120 



27 at the Unitarian Parish House. 

The Common is obviously an area of substantial historic significance. 
Detailed historic and architectural information on both the Common area 
generally and on the structures surrounding the Common are contained in a 
series of "inventory forms" incorporated in the Preliminary Report which is 
now on file with the Town Planning Board. 

3. Proposed Historic District Commission. The Study Committee recom- 
mends the establishment of an Historic District Commission ("the Commission"), 
to be made up of seven regular members and two alternate members. Each 
member would be appointed by the Selectmen. The terms of office would be 
staggered so that three regular members and one alternate member would be 
appointed initially for a one-year term; two regular members and one alternate 
member would be appointed initially for a two-year term; and two regular 
members would be appointed for a three-year term. After the expiration of 

the first term each new appointment would be for three years. 

The Study Committee beUeves that it would be useful for four regular 
members and one alternate member to be residents of the Historic District 
itself. It also recommends that at least one regular member be appointed from 
nominees submitted to the Selectmen respectively by the American Institute 
of Architects and the Cohasset Historical Society. Finally, the Study Committee 
recommends that at least one local realtor and one attorney be serving on the 
Commission at all times. 

4. Functions and Powers of Proposed Commission. The basic function of 
the Commission, as outlined in a proposed By-Law to be submitted to the 
Town Meeting, would be to review applications for certificates of "non- 
applicability", "appropriateness" or "hardship" in connection with the altering 
or constructing of any building or structure within the Historic District which 
affects "exterior architectural features" (as defined in the proposed By-Law). 

The basic purpose is to provide a mechanism whereby the present appearance 
of the Common may be preserved for the benefit of the town generally, with- 
out however interfering with the ordinary maintenance of the structures on 
and around the Common. The goal is prevention of developments incongruous 
to the historic aspects or architectural characteristics of the structures on and 
around the Common, and there would be a number of explicit exclusions 
from Commission review, as indicated in Section 7 of the proposed By-Law. 

Within 14 days after the filing of any application the Commission would be 
required to determine whether or not a public hearing is required in connection 
with the application. No public hearing would be required if such hearing is 
waived by all interested persons, or if the Commission determines that the 
proposed change in exterior architectural feature is so insubstantial in its 
effect that it could be reviewed by the Commission without public hearing. 

The Study Committee believes that changes in paint color should be

REPORT OF THE PLANNING BOARD 



During the past year, the work of the Planning Board has been in three 
general areas: routine administration of existing regulations; reviewing and 
revising the zoning bylaw; and future planning. 

The Board has spent many hours reviewing and drafting revisions to the 
zoning bylaw in order to clarify it and bring it into conformity with the State 
Zoning Act as amended. The Board plans to present a new bylaw for town 
meeting action which hopefully will be more useful for citizens and town 
boards. 

The Board has adopted and printed Site Plan Review Rules and Regulations. 
These regulations outline in detail the procedure for obtaining Site Plan Ap- 
proval for projects in the business and industrial zoning districts. 

Routine work of the Planning Board includes evaluating subdivisions where 
a new roadway is created, site plans, and divisions of land parcels. The Board 
attends Board of Appeals hearings and submits pertinent recommendations. 

In the area of future planning, the Board is working as part of a Town com- 
mittee on plans to improve traffic circulation, parking and beautification in the 
village. Because of the great impact that future sewer facilities will have upon 
the town's future, the Board plans to be fully involved in the study of these 
facilities. 

Two new members joined the Board last year to fill the unexpired terms 
caused by the resignations of Chairman Mark E. Goodrich and Roberta A. 
Leary. The Board appreciates their dedicated service. The vacancies were filled 
by John E. Bradley and Patricia Facey. Near perfect attendance characterizes 
the meeting of the Board, as well as numerous on-site inspections and Saturday 
sessions. The Board welcomes citizens at all its meetings. 

One of the most valuable activities of the Board has been meeting with 
other town boards and committees to discuss subjects of mutual concern. The 
Board hopes such dialogue will increase in the coming year.

REPORT OF THE DESIGN REVIEW BOARD 

During the year 1977 the Design Review Board carried out its mission in ac- 
cordance with Article 37 of the 1976 Town Meeting. Compiled was the follow- 
ing Statement of Purposes and Criteria for operation of the Board in order to 
assist property owners in the design process: 

The purposes of design review are: 

1. To recognize, protect and improve the character and attractiveness of 
each district in the town. 

2. To assist property owners in achieving the attractiveness and qualities 
appropriate for their property and which will protect the values in 
their district. 

The criteria to be considered in design reviewj^ 

1 . Buildings — To determine that the buildings relate well to the existing 
terrain and other buildings in the district. 

2. Landscape — To determine that the natural landscape is maintained 
where possible and that any additional planting, regrading and paving 
are in keeping with the neighborhood. ^' 

3. Circulation — To determine that vehicular and pedestrian access, 
parking faciHties and utiUties are appropriate for the site and do not 
detract from the district. 

4. Neighbors — To determine that neighboring owners will not be affected 
by surface water drainage, unattractive views, unusual noise, or unpleas- 
ant outdoor hghting and signs. 

Copies of this Statement are on file in the office of the Building Inspector. 

The Design Review Board assisted the Planning Board in the review of one 
building appUcation during the past year.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO STUDY 
SPACE NEEDS FOR TOWN OFFICES 

The Committee understands that its task is to determine what will be re- 
quired so that appropriate quarters will be available for all town functions that 
are within the purview of the Town Meeting and that the purpose of these 
quarters is: 

(a) To enhance the services of the town for the benefit of the townspeople 
as a whole on a cost-effective basis. 

(b) To provide for the convenience of the townspeople. 

(c) To provide an efficient and pleasant environment for the people who 
serve the town. 

(d) To take into consideration the needs of other organizations that make 
regular or occasional use of town facihties. 

To this point, the Committee has focused its attention on the gathering of 
information necessary to the discharge of its responsibihties. This has included: 

(a) A review of the reports and records of the prior Committee to Study 
Needs for Town Offices. 

(b) An investigation of population projections for the Town of Cohasset. 

(c) A survey, on a department-by -department basis, of the numbers of 
personnel currently employed by 38 other towns in the metropohtan 
area which have populations in a range from 80% to 200% of the size 
of Cohasset. The Committee is grateful to the Metropolitan Area 
Planning Council for assistance in carrying out this survey. 

(d) A survey of all Town Departments to determine what they perceive to be 
their needs for space and other facilities. 

(e) A survey of some 21 outside organizations that make use of town facil- 
ities to determine the extent of their needs and what alternatives might 
be open to them if town facihties were not available. 

As of this writing (Jan. 10-) 1978), nearly all of this background information 
has been gathered. The next move will be to assimilate it and translate it into 
space requirements and how best to accommodate those requirements. 

While the Committee will require the help of outside consultants, it proposes 
to make careful use of the information assembled by its predecessors. 

We are a committee of nine people and have nine viewpoints. We invite 
those of all interested townspeople. We propose to carefully analyze all the facts 



125 



and opinions we can gather in any effort to reach a reasonable conclusion.

REPORT OF THE DOG OFFICER 

To the Citizens of Cohasset: 

Submitted herewith is the Report of the Dog Officer for the year ending 
December 31, 1977. 

This report, being the first twelve month report of the Dog Officer, is more 
indicative of the Town's canine problem. 

I received 771 phone calls at my home. Of these calls 455 were pertaining to 
complaints of dogs being a general nuisance up to and including vicious attacks 
on children and adults alike. 316 calls were in the nature of lost dogs and 
people seeking general information. 

I investigated 301 complaints, recommended to the Selectmen that several 
hearings be held, and that several restraining orders be issued. 

The support of Chief Feola and his men and the Selectmen has been excellent. 
However, the support from many dog owners has been distressing. 

So let this year be a year of awakening to dog owners. We have a relatively 
small budget for dog control. We can keep it this way if people would show 
due consideration to their fellow persons. 

Dogs do not belong at Sandy Beach, the Sailing Club, the Music Circus, 
restaurants, the Yacht Club, the Town Pool, at our schools, and at STORES 
where many have knocked our senior citizens to the ground. They do not belong 
in your neighbor's garden and rubbish pail. They belong at home. Also, the 
melodious tone of a dog barking at night is very annoying to your neighbors. 

A leash law with full-time enforcement is costly; the average cost for towns 
of Cohasset's size is $55,000. to $60,000. per year. This is one expenditure 
that can be avoided by you, the dog owner, accepting your own responsbility. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John H. Barrett 
Dog Officer

REPORT OF THE PERSONNEL COMMITTEE 

During the past year an evaluation has been made of the material previously 
submitted by the various department heads as to the duties of their employees. 
It now appears, as a result of the evaluation, that further and more detailed 
information will be needed in order that the information may be of real value 
to the Town. 

A major portion of the time of the Personnel Committee, during the past 
year, has involved negotiating labor contracts with the employees of the Fire 
and Police Departments. Contracts have finally been worked out with the 
employees of both departments. 

At the same time that negotiations were started with the Fire and Police 

Department employees' negotiations were undertaken with the Municipal 
Employees. The Municipal Employees had retained the AFL-CIO as their 
bargaining agent. While negotiations were being conducted with the Union, the 
Municipal Employees decided they did not wish the Union to be their bargaining 
agent. As we could only conduct negotiations with the Union, and the Union 
was unable to get the cooperation of the Municipal Employees, negotiations 
have been suspended and no negotiations have been conducted for several 
months. 

The Municipal Employees have petitioned the Massachusetts State Labor 
Board, for a hearing at which time the Municipal Employees are expected to 
request that the AFL-CIO be decertified as the bargaining agent for the Municipal 
Employees. A hearing has been scheduled for the near future. Any further 
negotiations will depend on the outcome of the hearing.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE TO SURVEY 
THE STRUCTURE OF THE TOWN GOVERNMENT 

This Committee was established as a Permanent Standing Committee at the 
1976 Annual Town Meeting and commenced its business in early 1977. The 
Committee's purpose is to study the structure and functions of Cohasset town 
government, its officers, departments and boards, and from time to time to 
report its findings, and make such recommendations for action as it deems 
desirable. 

In the first year of its existence, the Committee has initiated an in depth 
survey of the functioning of our town government. In the process, it has met 
with many of the town boards and principal town officials with a view to de- 
veloping a better understanding of how town government is operating at the 
present time. Discussions have been held with, among others, the Board of 
Selectmen, Advisory Board, School Committ-ee, Board of Assessors, Town Ac- 
countant, Town Treasurer and Collector, Town Clerk and Town Moderator. 
These meetings are continuing at the present time. 

Among the most important questions we have asked those with whom we 
have met are the following: 

Are the boards functioning properly within the present structure? 
And are they adequately accountable for their actions? 

Should the membership on some of the boards and committees be 
appointed rather than elected? 

What are the relations with other boards and departments? 

What steps can be taken to make the various boards and departments 
operate more effectively in the best interests of the town? 

The Committee hopes to be in a position to make one or more recommen- 
dations to the town at an annual or special town meeting regarding our town 
government in the near future. 

The Committee has been very impressed with the seriousness of purpose and 
the dedication to our town's affairs of everyone with whom we have met this 
past year. All the town boards and officials have been very cooperative and 
helpful. Our meetings are of course open to the public and customarily held at 
town hall. We welcome every citizen of the town to attend our meetings and 
give us the benefit of his or her opinions regarding our town government — its 
structure and effective functioning.

COHASSET COMMUNITY CENTER STUDY COMMITTEE REPORT 

INTRODUCTION 

At the Cohasset Special Town Meeting of December 6, 1976, it was voted to 
establish a Study Committee for "exploring the possibility of acquiring the 
land, buildings, and equipment of the Community Center of Cohasset, Inc., for 
use by the town for recreational and civic purposes." It was furthermore 
stipulated that the Committee was to consist of seven members, three appointed 
by the Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, Moderator, and Chairman of the 
Advisory Board, two appointed by the Recreation Commission, and two ap- 
pointed by the Board of Directors of the Community Center of Cohasset, Inc. 

The following appointments to the Study Committee were subsequently 
made: 

Arnold Weeks 

Fran Wakeman by the Troika 

Arthur Pompeo 

Irene Brown 

Ham Tewksbury by the Recreation Commission 

Don Beamon by the Cohasset Community Center 

Matt White Board of Directors 

As of this date the Committee has met a total of seven times to discuss the 
various pros and cons of the Community Center acquisition issue, and to 
obtain information and advice from interested citizens and organizations within 
the community. In the paragraphs below, highlights of the Committee meetings 
and other activities are summarized and the Committee's final conclusions and 
recommendations are delineated. 

The first meeting of the Study Committee was on February 10, 1977. Its 
primary business was to elect Matt White Chairman and Irene Brown Secretary, 
and to assign the various Committee members specific data gathering responsi- 
bilities. It was agreed that a considerable body of unbiased information would 
have to be amassed before well founded recommendations could be made by 
the Committee. 

During the next meeting (Feb. 28, 1977) Committee member Arnold Weeks 
reported on his assessment of the C.C.C. building-faciHties. After inspecting the 
building in conjunction with the Cohasset Fire Chief and Building Inspector, 
Mr. Weeks concluded that a great deal of neglected maintenance would have to 
be done if the C.C.C. were to continue to obtain funds through its recreational 
programs and room rentals. In particular, the bowling alley ceiling was in need 
of repair and a new fire escape was needed. He furthermore speculated that if 
the building were to be renovated for a different use, such as town offices or 
elderly housing, it would have to be considered as only a shell, and $200,000 - 



129 



$300,000 would be required for renovation. After inspection of the C.C.C. 
financial records for the past several years, Mr. Weeks estimated that a cash flow 
of at least $22,000 a year is necessary to operate the C.C.C. as it is now operated. 

For the next Committee meeting (March 28, 1977) some of the citizens who 
were instrumental in inserting the C.C.C. Study Committee article into the town 
warrant were invited to discuss their motivations for inserting the article as well 
as their views regarding past and present C.C.C. activities. Sam Hassan, Robert 
Fessler, and Margaret Laugelle responded. 

The concensus was that the primary motivation of the participants was to 
preserve the C.C.C. facility for town utiUzation, in view of rumors that sale to 
a private party was being considered. Concern was expressed regarding modifi- 
cation of the building's external features, thereby loosing the only federal period 
structure in Cohasset. A majority, but by no means unanimous, opinion was 
expressed that in view of the present activities of the new Recreation Director 
and the Recreational Commission, there is no need for another recreation 
facihty at the C.C.C, and that such a redundant facility could not be supported 
by the community. 

For the April 26 meeting of the Committee, representatives from the 
Cohasset Recreational Commission were invited to express their feeling regarding 
acquisition of the C.C.C. by the town, for subsequent recreation utilization. In 
addition to Committee members Ham Tewksbury and Irene Brown, Richard 
Barrow, Helen Price and Henry Ainslie represented the Recreational Commission. 
Recreation Director Jack Worley was also present. The point was strongly made 
that the Recreational Commission has no interest in acquiring the C.C.C. facil- 
ities for recreational purposes and that, in fact, the facilities are not suitable for 
most of the programs planned by the Commission. It was pointed out that the 
only unique recreational possession of the C.C.C. is the bowling alley and that 
even that is obsolete, in need of repair, and would be expensive to maintain. 
Mr. Worley indicated that he is happy with his present office arrangement and 
that moving to the C.C.C. would be a hability rather than an asset. 

On May 9, representative of the C.C.C. Board of Directors shared with the 
Committee their views on the future of the C.C.C, as now constituted. In 
addition to Matt White and Don Beamon, C.C.C representatives Helen Yeager, 
Marie Caristi, Jack Langmaid and Tom Myers participated. It was made clear by 
the C.C.C Board of Directors that it is impossible to keep the Center going on 
its present basis and that, unless something unexpected happens, it will be 
closed within one year. Support for the Center and its programs is at a new 
low, with difficulty being encountered in recruiting the required number of 
members for the Board of Directors and raising a quorum for general member- 
ship meetings. It was indicated that a group composed of members of St. Stephens 
Episcopal Church had expressed interest in acquiring the C.C.C. facilities for 
elderly housing, and that possibility was being actively followed up. It was 
stated that unless the town or some local non-profit organization acquired the 
faciUties in the near future, there will be no choice but to sell them to a private 
party. 



130 



On several occasions during the Committee meetings discussed above, concern 
had been expressed regarding extensive modificaton of the external appearance 
of the C.C.C. buildings in the event that they were sold to a private party. The 
last two Committee meetings (June 23 and August 2) were therefore primarily 
devoted to determining to what degree existing agreements and town by-laws 
limit such modifications. 

It was estabUshed that the 1937 Common Trust Agreement, will be binding 
upon the C.C.C. property for another ten years, but that while this agreement 
limits property utiUzation, it does not cover alterations of external appearance. 
Discussions with Mr. Stephenson, of the Historic District Study Committee, 
revealed plans to propose a by-law in the upcoming 1978 Cohasset Town Meeting 
that, if passed, will limit C.C.C. building appearance modification. However, 
this by-law will have no retro-active impact. It was thus determined that, apart 
from the zoning by-laws there presently exists no legal instrument to prevent 
external modification, or demolition, of the C.C.C. building by a private buyer. 
The C.C.C. property is zoned "Residence B". Therefore, even with a special 
permit, it cannot be used for most retail business purposes. For example, it 
cannot be used to house a "Burger-King" or "Bradlee's" type operation. 

On October 2 the Chairman of the C.C.C. Study Committee contacted Tom 
Myers, Chairman of the C.C.C. Board of Directors to determine if any further 
action had been taken toward the acquisition of the C.C.C. properties by St. 
Stephen's Church group. He was told that the St. Stephen's Housing Trust, 
which consists of five members of St. Stephen's Church (but has no official 
connection with the church) had definitely decided to proceed with acquisition 
of the property by assuming all debts and liabilities of C.C.C, Inc. A verbal 
agreement has been reached that if the property is acquired by the group the 
external appearance of the buildings will remain intact. A C.C.C. general member- 
ship meeting was called for October 18, to seek approval for this transaction. 

On October 3 the Study Committee Chairman contacted Dan Cotton, Chair- 
man of the Town Office Study Committee, to determine whether his committee 
had considered, or planned to consider, the C.C.C. property for town offices, 
and to urge this option be examined as soon as possible. Mr. Cotton indicated 
that his committee had just recently been reconstituted and that their present 
efforts are concentrated upon estimating future town office requirements. He 
indicated that he would recommend that the C.C.C. property be considered, 
but he felt that no definite recommendation would be forthcoming for several 
months. 

Ehiring the October 18 C.C.C. general membership meeting it was voted to 
grant the Board of Directors permission to negotiate with the St. Stephen's 
Housing Trust, but not to agree to transfer the C.C.C. property in lieu of 
final approval by the general membership (in another meeting). It was estimated 
that the total habihties of the C.C.C. amount to about $10,000 (including the 
balance of the mortgage), while the worth of the property exceeds $75,000. 
It was suggested that an effort be made to inform other non-profit organizations 
within the community of the possible availability of the C.C.C. property, so that 



131 



all potential recipients can be considered on an equal basis. It was also strongly 
urged that the C.C.C. honor Board of Directors Chairman, Tom Myer's statement 
regarding Town "first refusal." This statement was allegedly made at the 
December 6, 1976 Town Meeting. Considerable concern was expressed regarding 
the loss of the Nursery School facilities that would accompany transferral of the 
C.C.C. property to the St. Stephen's group. 

On January 5, 1978 a special general membership meeting of the C.C.C. was 
held in response to a petition by "Thirty Concerned Members" of the C.C.C. 
The purpose of this meeting was to lay plans for retaining the C.C.C. as a center 
for community recreational activities. Mr. John Seavey, spokesman for the St. 
Stephen's Housing Trust (now call Community House, Inc.) was present but did 
not address the group. 

From the viewpoint of the C.C.C. Study Committee, the most significant 
action of the meeting was the presentation of a tally sheet which showed 1972- 
1976 annual income and expenses for the C.C.C. as well as predicted possible 
budgets for 1978 and 1979. This tally sheet was prepared and presented by Mr. 
John P. Conroy, a spokesman for the "Thirty Concerned Members." The tally 
sheet indicated that if, in 1978, $31 ,000 could bejraised through membership 
fees and donations, the Center could end up with a $13,000 surplus, even if 
$10,000 were spent on repairs and maintenance and $9,000 were paid in 
salaries. During 1976 the total receipts due to memberships and donations 
amounted to about $10,000 and the expenses for maintenance and salaries 
totaled $4,815. The surplus at the end of the year was $1,134. Mr. Conroy did 
not lay out specific plans for obtaining the additional memberships and 
donations, but he felt that the goals spelled out in the tally sheet are not un- 
reasonable. This contention was contested by several C.C.C. Board members 
who were present. 

CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS 

On the basis of information obtained during its meetings and other data 
gathering activities, the C.C.C. Study Committee has reached a number of 
conclusions that are relevant to the advisability of the Town acquiring the 
C. C.C. property. These conclusions are: 

1. The C.C.C. property will very likely change hands in the near future, 
since there is very little hope that the C.C.C. can continue to function 
on its present basis. If it is not acquired by the Town or a non-profit 
organization, the only alternative appears to be sale to a private party. 

2. There is a strong movement by the Community House Trust to acquire 
the C.C.C. property for elderly housing. A final decision on this action 
awaits approval by the C.C.C. general membership. No other non-profit 
organization within Cohasset has shown interest in acquiring the 
property. 

3. No legal instrument exists for the Town to preserve the external ap- 
pearance of the C.C.C. buildings, if a private buyer should choose to 
alter it. 



132 



4. The town recreational commission and the recreational director have 
indicated that the C.C.C. faciHties are not suitable for planned, town 
sponsored recreational programs and that they have no interest in 
acquiring or sharing those facilities. 

5. The only reasonable utilization of the C.C.C. faciHties by the town 
would appear to be for additional office space. However, the cost 
effectiveness of the necessary renovation is yet to be determined. 

In view of the above conclusions, the Study Committee offers the following 
recommendations: 

1. The Town should not acquire the C.C.C. facilities for recreational 
purposes since such action would be in conflict with the recommen- 
dations of both the Town Recreational Commission and the Recreational 
Director. 

2. The Town Office Study Committee should be urged to initiate and 
complete an evaluation of Town Office utilization of the C.C.C. 
property as quickly as possible, so that the opportunity to acquire that 
strategically located and historically significant property for use as 

a Town Hall Annex will not be lost to a private buyer. The Committee 
feels that acquisition of the property for town offices might prove 
highly desirable, but cannot recommend that course of action in Heu 
of a quantitative assessment of town office space needs and a cost- 
effectiveness evaluation of required renovation. 

3. In lieu of a recommendation from the Town Office Study Committee, 
acquisition and use of the C.C.C. by a non-profit Community Service 
Organization should be encouraged.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE 
ANNUAL REPORT - 1977 

I am pleased to submit herewith the annual report of the School Committee: 

January: In January we discussed the many changes which have taken place in 
the Physical Education Department as a result of the State anti-discrimination 
law known as Chapter 622. Under this law, boys and girls must be given the 
same learning opportunities, and this has resulted in the scheduHng of coed 
classes in physical education for the first time. We also took note this month 
of our plans to develop a unified health education program to be implemented 
during the 1978-1979 school year. 

March: The 1977-1978 budget for the school department, totalling $3,386,583 
was voted by Committee, During this month we received the encouraging 
report that the Cherry Sheet indicated Cohasset would receive $190,000 more 
in State funds than it obtained the previous year. The majority of this increase 
was due to our special education reimbursements resulting from Chapter 766 
expenditures. 

April: Jack Langmaid was elected as our new School Committee member, 
taking the place of Richard Silvia, who chose not to seek re-election. 

May: We began to set out School Committee goals for the 1977-1978 school 
year: external evaluation to be made of the Language Arts Program, K-12, 
with special emphasis on composition; continued improvement of the writing 
program, and fuller implementation of the Management-by-Objectives System 
to be provided for the Cohasset School Department by means of professional 
consultation and workshops. 

June: The Committee received the results of an eight-month in-depth study 
evaluating the school system in relation to the non-discrimination requirements 
of federal law Title IX. The Committee is pleased to be able to report that the 
Cohasset Schools were found to be in substantial compliance with all sections 
of the law. 

July: A letter was received from the New England Association of Schools and 
Colleges extending accreditation for Cohasset High School for another five 
years, through June 30, 1982. This honor was gratefully received, and the 
Committee wishes to thank the taxpayers and staff for making this possible. 

The demerit system, a junior-senior high school discipline code in operation 
during the 1976-1977 school year, was found to be a success both by students 
and faculty. As a result of this favorable report. Committee voted to continue 
this policy for the 1977-1978 school year and subsequent school years. 

September: September was a busy month. Committee voted the following: 

For an external evaluation of the language arts curriculum to be conducted by 
Education Testing Service for the sum of $4,563. 



142 



Six in-service training or release days for the 1977-1978 school year. 

We also received two letters of pending retirement from: Violet O'Quin - Joseph 
Osgood teacher who will retire at the close of the 1978-1979 school year. 
Mary Donovan - Deer Hill teacher who will retire July 5, 1978. 

A letter of resignation was accepted with regret from School Committee mem- 
ber, Mr. Thomas Wallace, who moved from Cohasset. 

Mrs. Irene Brown was appointed at a joint meeting with the School Committee 
and Selectmen to fill the vacancy- created by Mr. Wallace's move until the next 
Town election. 

October: Clark Chatterton was re-appointed Director of Athletics for the 
1977-1978 school year. 

The individual building Principals each made a presentation of the enrollments 
for this year and projections for next year. Due to a declining enrollment at 
the primary level, it was recommended that all third grades be housed at the 
Joseph Osgood School beginning in September, 1978. 

A moment of silent prayer was observed for Mrs. Dorothy Hall who became 
deceased on October 7, 1977. Mrs. Hall was a dedicated person who served as 
a teacher at the Joseph Osgood School from 1957 until her retirement in 
September, 1976. 

A wrestling team for the Junior/Senior High School was voted under the 
direction of Peter Clute. 

November: A tentative program for fifth grade gifted/talented children was 
outlined by the staff. A pilot program will be started at the Deer Hill School in 
February, 1978. 

The Committee acknowledged two honors bestowed upon our Superintendent, 
Dr. Maloney. He has been invited to appear on a national panel at the annual 
meeting of the American Association of School Administrators in Atlanta, 
Georgia, and he was one of four superintendents elected on a state-wide basis 
to be a voting delegate to this convention which will determine national 
policies for the next year. 

December: The Committee received a preliminary budget for the 1978-1979 
school year with a 4.40% increase. An alternate budget with an increase of 
3.07% was presented by the Superintendent. At the present moment both 
budgets are being studied by the School Committee. 

The School Committee is very proud of the interest the Student Advisory 
Committee and Communication Councils have shown in submitting proposals 
or suggestions for improving the school system. 



143 



The contentment enjoyed by our school system this past year can be attributed 
to the efforts of our many excellent and dedicated teachers, department heads, 
principals, and the members of our administrative team. The School Committee 
is always pleased to support and cooperate with the fine professional staff.

SUPERINTENDENT'S ANNUAL REPORT - 1977 

It is with pleasure that I submit to you my third amiual report as Super- 
intendent of Schools in Cohasset. 

The Superintendent and his staff are determined to provide the children of 
Cohasset with an educational program of the highest quality. We wish to 
develop those educational attributes which will enable our youngsters to 
succeed in a pluralistic society. To this end we have spent considerable time 
this past year solving specific target problems in such areas as the improvement 
of writing skills, understanding of mathematical concepts, spelling, and the 
knowledge of geographical and historical principles. An elementary curriculum 
guide was published puUing together the descriptions, objectives, and materials 
of subject areas in K-6, together with other subject area guides in the areas of 
English, Math, and Fine and Applied Arts, which coordinate our academic 
programs on a K- 12 basis. Improvements to these guides are being made during 
the course of the 1977-1978 school year, and revisions will be incorporated 
into our programs before the start of the next school year. Copies of the first 
draft of our curriculum guides have been placed in the Paul Pratt Library and 
may be reviewed by interested citizens. 

During the summer of 1977, the science curriculum in grades 7,8, and 9 
was fully revised, with implementation plarmed for September 1978. Study 
and necessary revisions of our grade 10, 1 1 and 12 program will be undertaken 
during a 1978 summer workshop. Changes will be made for the beginning of 
the 1979-1980 school year. As a further check on our academic programs, and 
to determine how well our youngsters are learning, we began an experimental 
competency testing program in mathematics. Extra instructional time is being 
provided to children who did not score as well as expected. We are currently 
evaluating the language arts program with the assistance of Educational Testing 
Service, Inc., a national testing company. The language arts report is due to be 
presented to us in June of 1978. We hope to be able to include any recommended 
changes in next year's program. To support the development of student abilities 
in composition, we used federal funds to purchase a variety of instructional 
materials, and members of our staff produced a manual to guide the teaching 
of composition throughout the school system. 

As a result of a screening procedure last spring, it is our feeling that a 
substantial improvement can be made in our abiUty to provide educational 
programs for gifted students. To this end, a committee is currently involved in 
establishing identification procedures, a pattern of organization, and a strategy 
for program development and content for these children. We anticipate the 
introduction of a pilot program for gifted and talented students at the fifth 
grade level at the Deer Hill School in February 1978. 

In an effort to improve the organization and operation of the school depart- 
ment, the Superintendent drafted 50 written operational policies and presented 
them to the School Committee for possible adoption. These policies will help 
to resolve the perplexing question of what is administration and what is policy. 



145 



In the area of employee relations, the Superintendent was able to draft 44 
written job descriptions covering every classification of employee in the 
school department. Once these are formally approved by the School Committee, 
each person who is hired by the school department will know his or her exact 
title and the duties and responsibiUties of the position for which he or she has 
been hired. The job descriptions cover all employees from the Superintendent 
of Schools to individual subject matter teachers, school nurses, secretaries, 
custodians, bus drivers, and cafeteria personnel — actually, the whole range of 
employee groups. At the present moment, the 50 written policies, as well as 
the 44 different job descriptions, have been referred to the School Committee 
for consideration and implementation. Favorable action on these items is 
expected prior to the close of the 1977-1978 school year in June. 

Cohasset, like many other school systems, is facing the multi-faceted problem 
of how to deal with a decline in school enrollment. The most notable decline 
has been taking place at the Joseph Osgood School where kindergarten classes 
are entering with 70 youngsters, a sharp decline from the era of 120 children 
a few years ago. As a result of this decline in kindergarten enrollments, we will 
be experiencing an orderly reduction in teaching staff at that school for the 
next several years. The Deer Hill School, although showing a slight decline in 
enrollment, has our most stable population. This is probably due to the fact 
that emigrating families with younger children are of the age most commonly 
associated with entrance at the 4th, 5th, or 6th grade levels. In anticipation 
of a dechne in enrollment at the Deer Hill School, we reduced our staff by 1 
fourth grade teacher for the 1977-1978 school year. This left us vulnerable at 
that grade level; would you believe 1 1 new fourth graders entered that grade 
this year! This is indeed unusual. Even so, we can anticipate a reduction in the 
number of classroom teachers at the Deer Hill School beginning with the 1981 
school year. At about that time, the impact of the much smaller kindergarten 
classes will be entering the fourth grade. The Senior High School is experiencing 
a decline in enrollment that is much less dramatic. This is primarily due to the 
fact that our largest class of 179 youngsters is in the 8th grade. However, with 
each succeeding class, smaller enrollments will occur. A definite decline in the 
number of teaching positions at the Senior High School probably will not be 
evident before the 1982 school year. 

The problem that the Superintendent faces is one of maintaining program 
excellence while reducing staff and preparing an accountable and defensible 
school budget. The cry to reduce school budgets in direct relationship to a 
decline in enrollment is understandable. However, such reductions must be 
tempered by the maintenance of program excellence in the face of inflation. 
These issues certainly are sensitive and highly emotional. Both the Super- 
intendent and the School Committee must seek reasonable solutions to these 
problems, while at the same time maintaining quality education for the com- 
munity. Please be assured that the Superintendent is committed to providing 
the School Committee with various optional educational plans which will 
reflect the decline in enrollment and orderly reduction in the number of 
staff positions, both teaching and non-teaching. 



146 



In our continued effort to keep the parent and taxpayer informed of the 
happenings within our schools, we have offered coffee hours, back-to-school 
ni^ts, parent conferences, activity meetings, individual conferences, and a 
variety of written documents to help bridge possible gaps between the adult 
population and the schools. The response to these programs is most encouraging, 
and we will continue with these efforts next year. 

The improvement of communications within our school system is of para- 
mount importance to the Superintendent. Accordingly, we have designed 
monthly, and sometimes weekly meetings among teachers at the same grade 
level or in the same academic discipline. Frequent meetings are scheduled 
between grade levels, as well as from school-to-school. Not only is it important 
for our teachers on a K-12 basis to understand what is going on in each building, 
but the transferring of pertinent academic information on each youngster helps 
to reduce overlapping and enables us to tailor our school programs to the needs 
of each individual child. Our goal is to achieve a smoothly running school system 
so that all personnel pull in the same direction. We encourage regular meetings 
among members of the staff at all grade levels. The meetings among the teachers 
at the transitional stages (grades 3, 6 and 8) of a child's progress through the 
school system add to the overall strength of our academic programs. This 
concem and awareness helps all of us to perform better in each of our assigned 
tasks. 

The building and maintenance refurbishing programs started during my first 
year as Superintendent in Cohasset, together with a campaign of clean-up, 
paint-up, and fix-up, continued during the calendar year 1977. 1 am proud of all 
the work that we have been able to do, much of it accomplished by our own 
staff members, and, therefore, will include a Htany of the major items of accom- 
plishment: 

Joseph Osgood School: painted 5 classrooms and corridors; carpeted 2 
classrooms; tiled the gymnasium floors. Black-topping the walkways and 
parking area will be completed in the spring of 1978. Funds for this item 
were budgeted in the 1977-1978 appropriation. 

Deer Hill School: painted the exterior of the building and lavatories through- 
out; extensive roof and ceiling repair took place in the past year. We also 
replaced a broken oil line and built counters and bookshelves for our library. 
More recently, we purchased a surplus emergency generator, lOKW, from the 
Federal Govemment and are in the process of converting this unit and wiring 
it for use at the Deer Hill School. The generator will replace the obsolete 
and limited capacity wet cell battery installation that came with the school. 

High School: most of the work that took place during the 1977 calendar year 
was at the High School. In this building we painted 1 1 classrooms and corri- 
dors; changed 44 light fixtures from incandescent to fluorescent; carpeted 
the High School Administrative Office and weight room areas; panelled the 
administrative office and attendance office areas, and refurbished the six 
small rooms, including ceilings, lights, and paint of the nurse's suite. In our 



147 



locker rooms we installed 31 water saving shower heads; purchased 56 new 
shower curtains for the girls' shower area, and changed lighting in both the 
girls' and boys' locker rooms. For security reasons we replaced 500 locks 
in our corridor lockers and replaced 9 exterior doors. Additionally, we 
re finished the steps to the gymnasium, installed a new ceiling in the lower 
gymnasium lobby, and built our own storage areas for the athletic and 
physical education department. 

As a result of our systematic and progressive building and maintenance 
program, I am pleased to be able to report that your school buildings are 
noticeably brighter and are beginning to give the appearance of being well 
maintained. We shall continue to implement our ongoing building and main- 
tenance program in calendar year 1978. Through this program we hope to be 
able to keep the cost to the taxpayers at a minimal sum and at the same time 
enhance the long-range values of our buildings. 

At this time I would like to note the excellent work accomplished by Peter 
Laugelle and the men of the Tree and Highway Department. The cooperation 
between Town departments has effected significant improvement in the grounds 
adjacent to all our schools, particularly the renovations that were accomplished 
at the Deer Hill School and Milleken Field. The heavy use of our athletic fields 
places an extra burden upon Mr. Laugelle and his men, and the School Depart- 
ment wishes to acknowledge in an appreciative manner their efforts in our 
behalf. 

I am proud of my good fortune in being associated with education in 
Cohasset. What has impressed me most is the open support of the townspeople 
for a quality program of instruction within reasonable costs. As a parent, tax- 
payer, and school official, I sense a need to continue this spirit of cooperation 
which is translated into a cUmate wherein the staff and students can function 
productively. There is still much to be done, and with the continued support of 
parents and the community at large, much will be done to make our schools 
what all of us want for our children. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John F. Maloney, Ed. D. 
Superintendent of Schools

SOUTH SHORE REGIONAL SCHOOL DISTRICT 

TREASURER'S REPORT 

Fiscal Year July 1 , 1976 to June 30, 1977 

In accordance with Section XII of the South Shore Regional School District 
Agreement effective January 6, 1960, 1 submit herewith details of the fiscal 
year July 1, 1976 thru June 30, 1977 financial transactions of the School 
District. 

Details are presented with respect to the July 1, 1976 to June 30, 1977 
estimated expenditures and their apportionment to member towns, actual 
receipts and expenditures, and a balance sheet of outstanding debt as of 
June 30, 1977. 

Total operating expenditures for the fiscal year were $1,192,1 15.00 and 
capital outlay expenditures were $122,151.70 details of which are shown in 
the expenditure schedule. 

Various additional expenditures under self-explanatory titles were made as 
per details set forth in the expenditure schedilte. 

Salary increases for all employees for the fiscal year 1976-1977 averaged 7% 
and the total of all salaries paid equaled approximately 70% of operating costs. 

On June 14, 1977 a new collective bargaining agreement was settled with 
our Teacher's Federation for a two year period beginning September 1, 1977 
thru August 31, 1979, which provides for basic salary increases of 3^/^% for 
fiscal year 1977-78 and 6Wo for fiscal year 1978-79. 

On November 17, 1976 the South Shore Regional School District Committee, 
after an open hearing on that date with members of the Board of Selectmen and 
Advisory Committees of the member towns of the school district, finalized 
plans to construct a "mini-addition" to our school facilities to conform with 
the mandated statutory requirements of Chapter 622 Acts of 1971 to provide 
Equal Standards of Admission; Chapter 766 Acts of 1972 to provide for students 
with Special Needs and Chapter 925 Acts of 1973 the Anti-Discrimination Law. 

Estimated cost of the "mini-addition" has been determined to be $520,000.00 
and available funds will provide the necessary financing as follows: 

Total Estimated Cost $520,000.00 

Use of Available Funds: 

Balance in Expansion Planning 

Account $ 85,113.00 

Transfer from New Equipment 

Account 83,400.00 

Transfer from Surplus Revenue 296,000.00 464,513.00 

Balance from 1977-78 Capital Outlay 

Assessment $ 55,487.00 



156 



By planning not to bond the $520,000.00 estimated cost of the proposed 
"mini-addition" the South Shore Regional School District will save approxi- 
mately $109,200.00 in interest costs assuming a 5 year loan at 7%. 

On January 25, 1977 the State Board of Education approved a grant to aid 
this project in amount of $509,000.00 and it is estimated that 57.37% or 
$292,013.30 will actually be made available to the school district in five equal 
installments of $58,402.66 beginning with the fiscal year 1977-78 thru 1981- 
82. 

On June 7, 1977 the General Contract for the construction of the "mini- 
addition" was awarded to Scaldini Inc., Medford, Massachusetts, in the original 
amount of $395,696.00. Ground breaking ceremonies took place on June 14, 
1977 and construction was started June 27, 1977. Target date for completion 
of the project is December 31, 1977. 

Five additional classrooms wiQ be provided by the "mini-addition" together 
with girls locker and shower facilities. The total enrollment capacity of our 
school (370 students) will not be increased by the "mini-addition" but serious 
overcrowded classroom conditions will be corrected by provision of 91 additional 
student spaces; as well as enable the expansion of our present library area. 

Surplus Revenue was determined to be $369,569.99 as of June 30, 1977 
and was derived from the following sources:
